Im wondering how to find your "FPS". Whether its 29, 30, 25 how do you figure this out.
Thanks a lot,

What are you asking about; your footage, your comp, your camera?

Standard-definition NTSC video is 29.97 interlaced frames per second.
The NTSC film frame rate is 23.976 frames/sec. It is NOT 24 or 23.98, it's 23.976.

Standard-definition PAL video is 25 interlaced frames per second.

High-definition gets stickier, especially among the four different HD resolutions.

I'd try looking up the term Frame Rate on Wikipedia. It's an informative read.

There's information about frame rate here. If you want to know the frame rate of a footage item, just select it in the Project panel, and you can see the frame rate for the selected item at the top of the Project panel.
